West Marine has opened a new store at the Eastern Shopping Plaza in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.
The expansive store will serve boaters and sailors who enjoy the waters in and around Culebra, Palomino and St. Thomas. At 16,000 square feet, this is the largest West Marine store in Puerto Rico and will serve an active coastal region. The new store has set aside a large area for fishing supplies and boasts a newly created engine parts section.
In a press release, West Marine said the 19-person West Marine crew has several hundred years of boating, fishing and sailing experience between them and collectively have cruised thousands of nautical miles.
“Puerto Ricans and visitors of the region appreciate the outdoors and enjoying life as much as possible,” said General Manager Pedro Monge, a Puerto Rican native and lifelong marine enthusiast who has been with West Marine for more than 13-years. “The Fajardo location in particular was designed to meet the needs of this community and we are excited to have the opportunity to serve them year-round.”
